Side Effects
1st 2 weeks, headaches, foggy brain, anxiety, memory loss, but suicidal/hopelessness thoughts subsided. week 4 suddenly depression is coming back, anxiety, memory loss still, hopelessness is returning :(

Additional Thoughts
I really hoped this would work. Was hopeful the first week when it didn't make me completely crazy like lexapro did. So all the side effects were tolerable compared to the hopelessness feelings that subsided. Today its been 4 weeks, Id say at 3.5 weeks I started to get depressed again and the hopelessness came back :( Im pretty disappointed, so Im goin back into the docs for something else. Could poss be that Im on Bupropion instead of Wellbutrin, I've read that makes a difference. We'll see??

Reason: Depression Date: 13 January 2010
Side Effects
The biggest side effect is severe headache, next is memory loss.

Additional Thoughts
I am taking Bupropion XL 450mg. The memory loss is effecting me in my job and my dependability. I don't trust myself to remember important events or make decisions. It did help my depression but I had to increase to 450 mg after a few months. I still have some depression when I am going through stressful events in my life such as sickness in family members. My sex drive did increase.
